Professor Dolphin's group has expertise in the field of neuronal voltage-dependent calcium channels, and our current work has particular reference to the role of accessory subunits, beta and alpha2delta. They are examining how these subunits modulate the channels and how these interactions are affected in disease states or by drugs.
These annual Award Lectures, established in 2008, celebrate how Professor David Smith taught and mentored generations of scientists who have been pioneering the exploration of the molecular and spatio-temporal dynamics of neuronal systems world-wide. Subsequently, the subjects were expanded to all spatio-temporal biological interactions in the fields covered by the Department.
